Get your pumpkins all week long for your Halloween gatherings – and for your front porch decorating.

Beechwood Farms Haunted Hayrides

Beechwood Farms is the perfect fall spot.  And they’ve got hayrides for the kids – scary hayrides and less scary hayrides so you can choose what works best for your people.

Visit their Facebook page for all the full details, but hayrides are running nightly on the weekend before Halloween and on Halloween evening.  It’s a perfect way to start your Halloween celebrations or wrap up your Halloween plans.

Remember the bat houses at Sunrift?

Bring your family out Friday night, October 27 for the Second Annual Halloween Bat Count.  The bats will give you a pretty impressive display around sunset.  You’ll be able to learn why bats matter and help take part in both observing and counting the bats.  There’ll be a bonfire, party bags, snacks and a raffle to win your very own bat box.

Trick or Treat at Farmhouse Tacos

Calling all ghosts and goblins!  Before you hit the streets and the neighborhoods to gather all that Halloween loot, better get some dinner in ya’.  And why not a taco?  In fact, if you’re under ten years old AND you are wearing your costume, Farmhouse Tacos will give you that taco for free!  (Of course kids need to be accompanied by an adult.)

Open Mic on the Trail

If Tuesdays are already about Open Mic Night for you, then you’ll love the costumed twist.  And if you’ve never attended an Open Mic Night before, then this would be a great one for your introduction to the music scene in TR.

Upcountry Halloween Bash

Over at The Grove there’s a big bash for the night of Halloween.  You can come before you trick or treat with the kids, or head over after.  Or do both.

The party will be a costume party and will be focused on Day of the Dead style celebrations.  It’s a family friendly event with two bands, a costume contest, food and a cash bar.  Admission is free and it’s sure to be loads of fun.
